Photo Patrick Azcarate 2020In this 3-week course, we will meet on Mondays and Thursdays for an hour and a half each day to discuss design exercises and share our creative responses to them. The daily stress and trauma of our current social environment have a way of shutting off creativity. These design exercises are meant to reinvigorate the creative muscles inherent in every human being. Design elements and principles are the basic visual toolbox of every craft. The elements form the basic vocabulary of visual design, while the principles constitute the broader structural aspects of composition. Join us in getting your creative juices flowing again.
